Yesterday returned to the cold, overcast and slightly deary kind of May day I’ve grown accustomed to in Michigan. We stayed home and watched The History Channel from morning until night. It was our typical winter weather Sunday and I was happy when the sunshine came out again and all things boating were a go. Last year I ruined a perfectly beautiful Memorial Day after drinking too many Sambuca shots at a friend’s birthday the night before and there was no moving my ass from the living room floor. Once we got out this year I assumed Matt would want to get the sails up as soon as possible. I was all set to start pulling and winching lines when he suggested we just rest for awhile and get the sails up later. Although I had gotten myself geared up for a sail I had no problem switching to lounge mode, pulling out a sport-a-seat and a magazine. The dodger and bimini provided a perfect amount of shade, and all I was missing was a tall handsome servant named Geoffrey serving me chilled wine while I relaxed.
As the day wore on Matt was no closer to getting the sails up and I had relaxed in the cockpit, the cabin, and had even taken a nice nap in the v-berth. I had gotten to the point where I had been doing nothing for too long and now I didn’t want to do anything productive. Matt must have been on the same page as me when I asked if he wanted to go out (just cause I’m a good wife) and he asked if I wouldn’t mind sitting at the mooring for the rest of the day. No problem here. For a few more hours we lounged around snacking, relaxing, and enjoying our home away from home. The only productive thing we did do is when leaving Matt had me pull out the camera while we circled the boat for a 360 degree view. Enjoy!!
